I'd go the same apart from France making the quarters ahead of Lebanon. Would have fancied us to beat NZ and make the final if it was on home soil, but the conditions will obviously suit them

Group B is very hard to predict.
NZ are at their weakest for some time, while Samoa and Tonga have finally started taking International League seriously since the last WC and have played some very good games against each other and other Pacific nations. Scotland are also surprisingly strong. Anyone could win that group, but Samoa is my tip, with Tonga a chance to pip NZ for the other spot.

PNG should win their group easily. They are a much stronger side at home and a much stronger side since the last WC.

Fiji should be a bit too strong for Italy.

Tonga could win the world cup and it would do nothing for RL in Tonga, let alone the game as a whole, but would be a great boost for a second NZ NRL side as that's where most of their squad come from :roll:

My predictions are:
Quarter Finals
Australia v Samoa
New Zealand v Fiji
Tonga v Lebanon
England v PNG
Semi Finals
Australia v New Zealand
Tonga v England
Final
Australia v Tonga
Winner
Australia
JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Wakefield is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

problem with Samoa & Tonga is that they'll gas towards the end of games, they'll always start strong but physiologically pacific islanders struggle staying the distance

Australia to beat NZ in the final and England to lose gallantly in the semis, just as it has been for so many years.
However, until a ball is passed or kicked, we can dream.

Do England have any warm up matches or do we just rock up to face Australia first game ?
